EE Cycleworks looking for a partner to make crank

CHATTANOOGA, TN (BRAIN) — After nearly 12 months of development and testing, Pacenti Cycle Design has decided not to pursue the high-end crank market with the EE Cycleworks crank design.  

“I believe the EE crank has an industry-leading design concept; no other crank comes close to the EE’s stiffness to weight ratio,” said Kirk Pacenti, founder of Pacenti Cycle Design. “But the EE crank requires more resources than I am able to commit to the project at this time. Simply put, I’ve never done anything half way and I don’t intend to start now,” he added.

Craig Edwards, owner of EE Cycleworks, is the crank's designer, but he finds himself too busy growing his company’s brake business to give the crank project the attention it needs.

“We will be re-evaluating the EE crank relative to the current competitive crank offerings as well as what might be the next step in bringing it to market. We are open to the prospect of a new partnership,” Edwards said.

“But with our limited resources, we are pretty busy working to further the brake business. We have limited ability to jump back to full speed on the EE crank project,” he said.
